Liverpool will hope they can use home-field advantage to overturn an aggregate deficit as they welcome Real Madrid to Anfield today. Don't miss this Champions League quarter-final second leg clash with our Real Madrid vs Liverpool live stream guide.

The odds are in Real Madrid's favor today with the team going into the second leg 3-1 to the good. The UEFA Champions League's most successful team and current La Liga titleholders are firmly in control of this quarter-final tie, though an away goal in the first leg will give hope to a Liverpool side that is no stranger to spectacular comebacks.

A Vinicius Júnior brace bookended the first leg victory with Marco Asensio making the most of a defensive error from Trent Alexander-Arnold for his goal. Mohamed Salah pulled one back for the Reds in the 51st minute which could prove crucial in this tie.

Since their last meeting, both sides have played one game in their domestic leagues.

Los Blancos kept the pressure on city rivals Atlético Madrid in La Liga with a win in a tough El Clásico clash with Barcelona. That marked four wins in four in the league and extended Real's unbeaten streak to 13 in all competitions.

Liverpool also won at the weekend, defeating Aston Villa 2-1 in a spirited come-from-behind win to make it three consecutive victories in the Premier League. That win ended a streak of six defeats at home in the league for Jürgen Klopp's side.

With two of the Champions League's most successful clubs going toe-to-toe, it looks set to be an entertaining quarter-final second leg. Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of this UEFA Champions League clash between Liverpool and Real Madrid with our guide below.
